Why does The MAP Agency focus on women and flexible employment opportunities?
At The MAP Agency there are three basic facts that led us to this mission:
- Women regardless of job status handle the majority of household and care related task and they will often feel pushed or pulled to choose between career or motherhood being the priority.
- When women choose motherhood as the priority they risk altering their career path and earning potential.
- Research shows that flexible work options is a way to build a better work/life fit, supporting overall wellbeing and providing a more satisfying job experience. The result is less attrition for companies and more efficient and productive professional output.
What is considered flexible or alternative employment?
Flexible work/alternative employment comes in many forms, it could be independent contract assignments, special projects, remote work, part-time or temporary employment such as maternity fills, job sharing etc. We consider assignments flexible when the member can maintain some level of control on how, when and where they work with a focus on high quality, professional output.

Do members pay a membership fee?
Your MAP membership is free. Typically, our fees are negotiated directly with the organizations we work with. However, there are instances when an organization may want to negotiate payment directly with a member and we will arrange a flat fee or percentage of total compensation. As a member you will always be involved with that process.
From time to time we will offer optional additional services, opportunities, and resources to our members that may require payment.
